  1. My goal is to earn the "art/detail eyes" most here have. Sadly my time and budget doesn't allow to follow both hobbies so I have to make a decision. But after I saw Wielands knifes I think that's a way that can lead to good results . Probably I will do it reverse of what you do Kevin and make a knife once a while to test out new earned skills.
  2. This is for a friend who wanted a hunting knife for his sister. She is hemophiliac and has to stay safe from the blade. From now on I will focus more on bench jewelry, after all the knives from goldsmiths in this forum I decided to go this path for a while. A friend of mine is master goldsmith and teaches me the craft now
  3. If you make a knot in the hole while you sewing the leather it won't open when one loop is damaged. Very cool tutorial though. Thanks for sharing And fancy and good a very different things. The thing you have made looks solid and trustworthy;)
  4. As someone with the same amount of interests/Hobbies I canrelate to the "master of none" feeling you describe. But since we are the jack of all trades I look forward to the moment we can combine the single things we have learned to become a great good picture. And you are very good on your way! I like the things you showed here. Keep going with it
  5. Second here. Don't toss in in the trash. I would make jewelery out of this. Make little pieces and put some silver and gold around.
  6. That is way more than a knife. I love the connection it has to your family. Hopefully this will be a family treasure in 100 years
  7. Here we stand looking at this cool coat hanger. I guess if you give fire and blood to your work its outstanding every time. I would say your student is growing strong. Hopefully he pays his debt.
  8. Cool blade! Which period is it based on? Do you have any information about the found surroundings?
  9. That's so awesome!! What a setting for forging. How long did you lived there? Is it a cabin you rented or does it belong to your family? Are these type of mountain cabins still usual in your country?

  11. I like the image of a bunch of drunken smiths sticking red hot swords in various liquids while a group of scared Boy Scouts in the woods try to figure out what happens there

    If they have a furnace where they can heat a few of these billets must that be the place on earth that is closer to hell for the most people than anywhere else v
  13. I guess he didn't wanted the job after he learned that he sits in front of a sword smith
